Double Shawl Collar

Mrs. C | Posted in Teach Yourself To Sew on

 Good day-

I’m trying to create this collar….http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/f2145-p … ge_id=1232

I took a regular shawl collar extended it, and  I pleated it to create the effect.  Now I’m stuck.  should a stitch on the fold to hold the pleat?

It doesn’t look like this in the picture…it looks more natural….how do I get the “fold” to stay?

Thanks

    Just a suggestion, but I would cut  seperate pieces and sew together  get the "pleat effect"

    How deep did you make the pleat?  I would make it almost as deep as the outside collar to get the desired effect.  Or, as has been suggested, make 2 collars.
